Unable to transfer issue between repositories

Dear all,

I am unable to transfer an issue from on repository to another repository. What are the requirements to be able to do this?

I am one of the owners of the organisation of the repositories and I am also in the role Admin in both repositories.

What did I miss to configure or what do I lack?



The criteria are:

  1. You have to have write permissions on both repositories :heavy_check_mark:
  2. The two repositories must be owned by the same user/org :heavy_check_mark:
  3. You cannot transfer an issue from a private repository to a public repository. :question:

Transferring issues documentation

Hi @canuckjacq, no I am not able to move an issue from a private to a public repository. Just tested it with two newly created repositories. So, what do I miss?

Apologies for being unclear - that’s by design. You can transfer issues private --> private or public --> public or private, but not private --> public.

Ok. I have to public repositories, but I am unable to transfer an issue from Issues · jQAssistant/jqassistant · GitHub to GitHub - jQAssistant/jQA-Idea-Hub. And I have no clue why…

We’ll need to have a look at your account/permissions etc - please open a ticket.
